What does trouble code "SC

Hello Ryan,
It means your device went thru a self check in an effort maintain optimum copy quality. Your device could not get Magenta (pink/red) to even get close to the target values for that color. The most likely cause (and we hope so) is the Magenta development unit is toast. Replace it. But of course there are a myriad of other fun causes. As a sidebar, you might want to consider replacing yellow and cyan at the same time as they tend to croak at pretty much the same time. You have a quite reliable device as a rule. It's worth the cost. Take care. Let fixya know I helped ya please. SPINAL
